The UPS and the diesel generator are two means for keeping a server operational if there are difficulties with the main source - an outage or shaky current which cannot keep the hosting server functional, for instance. UPS is an abbreviation for Uninterruptible Power Supply, though it is frequently referred to as Uninterruptible Power Source as well. The UPS is, basically, an efficient battery that is attached to the server and to the electricity network at all times, so in case there is any blackout, it's already operating, which enables the server to continue running without losing any data. The diesel generator is an engine that will power up the whole data center. It needs some time to start working and it is the UPS which gives it this time. Those two power solutions are a requirement for any facility or hosting company that wants to avoid info loss and hardware damage as a consequence of an unexpected power issue.
